Movies shouldn’t be made with their marketing departments in mind, but sometimes a new release comes along that makes you wonder just who the hell it’s aimed at. As the unwieldy (and weirdly apostrophe-less) title suggests, Christopher Landon’s busy horror-comedy is happy to throw everything at the wall and see what sticks. But is it a sweet-natured ode to maintaining the old fashioned values of scouting (knot-tying, hooting like an owl, latent homoeroticism) in the face of disaster? A CG gore-fest for newbies unaware of its many antecedents? Or a gross-out gag-athon full of sluts (their word, not ours), strippers, topless zombies and wearyingly fratty sexual politics?

A witless undead retread served up as a vulgar revenge-of-the-dorks comedy.

Will make you want to punch the nearest teenage boy in the face.

It's all too dumb and ribald for most tastes, but if you liked all the zombie comedies that came before, well, here's another one.

As horror, "Scouts Guide" is too frivolous to thrill. As comedy, it leans too much on scenes that see the teens groping big-breasted topless zombies or the beasties sexually molesting young girls.

A disregard for the rules established by George Romero is far from the only problem with Christopher Landon's film...

Proves profoundly unsatisfying, a mishmash of tones and gags that you've seen done better, elsewhere, many times before.

A likable horror-comedy with a satisfyingly high splatter count.
